We find some watches here at Vision Vintage, but not always one's that manage to capture the essence of what we are trying to achieve, and that which is most important to us, finding condition worthy examples for collectors, and interesting, rare details that come from years of dedicated study.

 

This 2471 Omega Cosmic is one such watch. Dating to early 1950's, it has one of THE best dials we have ever come across, not only because it is uniform with a natural, light patina, but because it is a rare radium dial version of this model. The last one was sold at Philips Auction.

 

The reason we don't find many with radium, is simply because they aged badly, and degraded over many years. Not to mention the watches were snapback, so they rarely escaped moisture.<
